Upstate Picked for New Casino Locations

On Wednesday evening, a panel at the Gaming Facilities Location Board released the locations where casinos will be built in New York. The Board rejected six proposals for Orange County which included New Windsor, Newburgh, Montgomery, Blooming Grove and two close to Rockland in Woodbury and Tuxedo. According to the Board, the Catskills Hudson Valley Region is too close to New York City and the casinos are meant to improve the economies of areas of upstate New York. The three locations that were approved were Sullivan, Seneca, and Schenectady Counties. Now that the decision has been made, developers will be awarded licenses after environmental studies and background checks are completed.
